Game 17: Habs/Canes

  • With two fantastic wins in their last two games, the Montreal Canadiens are making believers out of not only their fans, but the rest of the league. They need to focus their newly found cohesion against a Hurricanes team that somehow alwyas finds a way to succeed against us – dating back to a very bitter playoff loss during the 2005-2006 season that witnessed the team go on to win the Stanley Cup.

    Cam Ward has been good this season, although his last outing was a rough one  as he was pulled in the second period of an 8-1 loss to the Flyers after he gave up 4 goals on 13 shots. The Canadiens would do well to try to emulate their Philly rivals – as Montreal is amongst a group of 4 teams in the Eastern conference who have yet to score 40 goals as a team (New Jersey, Toronto, and NY Islanders). That is not the kind of company you want to keep.

    Go Offense! Go Habs Go!!!

  1. Well I must say I was presently surprised that we came out with the intensity and drive against Carolina, we seemed to loose it somewhat with too many penalties but recaptured it again later in the second period and the rest is history.

    Now perhaps the biggest test we have had this year to date, the game against PHilly. They are playing very well too so it will be interested is we can handle their strength. As well hope to see our PP continue to improve.
